Abstract:

Eliminating or substantially reducing pollutant loads are the regulatory focus of many stormwater permits in estuary or coastal areas where installations are located. The volume of stormwater that is generated from naval installations, as well as the resultant pollutant load, is also of increasing concern. This is because of the significant discharge fees for impervious areas that are being charged by municipalities and states to fund their compliance programs. Strategies and technologies that can reduce pollutant loads and the volume of runoff, or discharge of stormwater, will be critical to compliance strategies and to reduce operational costs at installations. Described below are some of the key physical settings and stormwater regulatory requirements that must be met at naval installations.
